Justice is a moral right it indicate fairness to one and all and it should be administered without bias or partiality when a crime of any sort is committed and a person happens to be on the scene of the crime or in the vicinity. That does not constitute participation or guilt but instead derives only suspicion. To assure fairness or justice a thorough investigation using all means of evidence and possible witnesses if any or a legal confession of the person under suspicion should be applied so that the truth may be brought out, only then can guilt or innocence can be established.
Many innocent people have been incarcerated because of sloppy work from the enforcement agencies and courts, while the real culprit went free, and able to commit other crimes. Once a crime has been committed, the authorities have the power to arrest based on Probable Cause. But the individual must be proven guilty beyond the reasonable doubt. Unfortunately, in some cases there is no justice served In our system today if you cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed to you by the courts, this does not mean you will be totally defended, It means you will be legally defended.
If you are able to afford a lawyer this does not mean that you may go free however, the lawyer most likely will work harder to receive a positive completion of your case. I have worked in the field of Criminal Justice for 20 years and have witnessed the rich commit the same crime as the under privileged but, they either go free or get probation, while the poor get hard time. Some of the cases are decided by race, ethnic background and religion when the constitution clearly states justice for all.
Justice is also involved in business practice when a customer purchases a product and the product is faulty the customer is usually not allowed a full refund but, instead is only offered a product replacement during a certain period after purchase. Why should there be a restriction to the customer when he or she is not responsible for the defect of the product? This seems to be unfair practices in which I believe there should be a justifiable opportunity of choice as to a refund or other.
`Justice can only be served by following the rules and amendments of the constitution of the United States of America. Personal opinions, individual judgments by appearances will not acquire true justice for all, Focusing on the reason for an arrest and possible prosecution based on legal evidence should be the only interest in coming to the truth and serving justice. Our constitution is written and defines that no man is above the law..
Being a victim of a crime can be devastating and gives one the feeling of an eye for an eye Moses law) of the bible.. My question," is justice served? "" Does revenge give closure or considered to be justice? " I have yet to hear a victim say they are satisfied with the punishment of the person who committed a criminal act whether an assault, rape, robbery or murder of a love one have been committed.
I am a firm believer in our system and it may not be as just as we all may prefer it to be, Yet if there was no system things would be worst than it is now. Comparing the 15th or 16th century with today our safety from the criminal mind is much better than it was then. A person could be shot , hanged or assaulted and there was little or no law for protection. I do feel that justice should be for all regardless of who and what you have been accused of and if found guilty the punishment should fit and not exceed the dominance of the crime.
